INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Former Miami quarterback Robert Marve will choose between a scholarship at Purdue and walking on at Tennessee early next week, his high school coach said Saturday.
Marve said he'd leave Miami at the end of last season after losing the starting job to Jacory Harris.
Robert Weiner, Marve's coach at Plant High School in Tampa, said Marve has taken his time because he is leery of making a mistake.
``He really did his homework,'' Weiner said. ``With a transfer, you can't be wrong. You have to make the right choice.''
Marve would have two years of eligibility remaining, starting with the 2010 season.
Marve visited South Florida, Arizona State, Nebraska and Purdue. He called off visits to Texas Tech and UCLA because those schools liked their quarterback situations coming out of the spring.
or school in 2009. Weiner said Marve has not had contact with coaches at Tennessee.
Weiner didn't say which way Marve was leaning, though he said there was ``nothing he doesn't like about Purdue.''
One of the prized signings in Miami's 2007 recruiting class, Robert Marve missed his freshman season because of injuries he sustained in a car crash.
Marve split time last season with Harris. After missing his fourth English class of the semester, Marve was kept home from the Emerald Bowl. Although Marve said he was not absent, just minutes late, his appeals went nowhere.
Harris was selected the starter entering 2009. On Dec. 30, Marve told The Associated Press he was leaving Miami.
The former Florida high school Mr. Football award winner started 11 games for the Hurricanes last season and completed 116 of 213 passes for 1,293 yards with nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
Weiner said as many as 30 schools were interested in Marve after he announced he was leaving Miami.
``He's pretty much been recruited the way he should have been coming out of high school,'' Weiner said.
